is on the scene for us. alison, how did this happen? >> that's what crime scene investigators and ntsb are trying to figure out. there's going to be a press conference in minutes given by the ntsb. everyone is trying to figure out how this ferry carrying 300 passengers crashed into the dock in new york be city around 8:45's this morning. not only did it send passengers flying in the air inside this boat, it's caused a huge gash in the hull of the boat itself. the coast guard says a tracking device shows that this vessel was coming in too fast, that it was coming in up to 15 miles per hour, which the coast guard official says is too fast when you're docking a boat. we did talk with the head of the company who says that the captain who was at the control of this vessel was in control or in command of this vessel when it did crash hitting one loading dock and then hitting a second loading dock. this captain, by the way, has been with this company for about ten years. a breathalyzer was performed on the captain. it came back negative and preliminary breathalyzers were conducted on five crew members a

airliners. well, boeing says it is working with ntsb investigators, looking into monday's fire on a japan airlines 787 at boston's logan airport. the fire involved the batteries in the belly of the plane used to power the aircraft while on the ground. and in a statement, boeing adds, "nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship with any previous 787 power system events." as for the second japan airlines dreamliner that was spewing fuel at logan airport yesterday, it was a pilot from another plane that alerted the control tower that the 787 was losing fuel. and then the control tower notified the unsuspecting j.a.l. pilot. the ntsb says it's not looking into the fuel leak which j.a.l. officials are deeming a mechanical problem. and boston airport officials say there was no leak in the fuel tank, but the plane was venting fuel, which is the aircraft's way to dump excess fuel. but it's not usually seen on the runway. so after four hours, the dreamliner was checked out and cleared to fly. now, the japanese government told cnn they have asked airlines to inspect planes for ba
